Voz is a luxury women’s brand that creates stylish and modern pieces including scarves, sweaters, and wraps, as well as accessories and gifts.
Founded in 2012, VOZ cites their collaborative business model, intended to showcase, preserve, and support of traditional art forms. The company collaborates with politically and economically marginalized women to create their fashion collections, and provides design leadership, training, and opportunity for indigenous women in the rural regions where they reside.
The company’s primary artisan education center is in Temuco, Chile, working with Mapuche artists. Voz hopes to expand to create opportunities for indigenous artisan communities worldwide.
